While remote teaching presents a number of challenges, one that needs particular attention is educational equity. How can educators ensure that all students are set up for success?

Watch José Viana, Senior Advisor of Educational Partnership at Lexia Learning, as he gives you strategies to help you better address the needs of emergent bilingual students during this time. In this recorded edWebinar, we review:

  • Strategies for implementing remote learning contingency plans, focusing on selecting programs that maintain the rigor and focus on long-term student outcomes
  • Valuable data from Lexia Learning from a recent research study that are relevant to remote learning and our responsibilities to English learners and their parents during the national emergency caused by the coronavirus disease 2019
  • How to address unequal access to technology, hardware, and software
  • How to create an environment that includes and values all students through culturally responsive pedagogy and personalized instruction

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school and district leaders of the kindergarten through elementary levels.
